Bike and Cat Gallery: Photos of Your Velo-Loving Feline!

Not sure of the proper place for this, so posting it into the General Discussion Forum:

I have started a "Bike and Cat Gallery" on my weblog. Sure, that might seem ridiculous to some -- but if you love cats, you understand! If you'd like to share a photo of your cat posing with or on your bicycle, please submit it, or post it here! I am including one of mine below.

Last time I had a bike indoors, one of the guys tried to eat the spokes. Since I don't have a digital camera, I will take a look at your site.

I have a set of them here:

This is probably my favorite. Sabre, in the photo, passed away this past February. He was 16 years old and had been diabetic since he was 7.




I've also got a few in this set:

I particularly like this one. Obviously something attracted Smudgie's attention on the wall for me to get the same shots with two different bicycles!

Machka, thanks for the photos! I've added them to the gallery.

Nermal, my cats try to chew the cables, so they are not actually allowed to be alone with the bikes : )

Rob P., thanks for the tip; I had not noticed Foo before.

Hmmmm....

Sorry, my cat is camera shy. I'm not kidding, she will do her best to not be photographed.

OK, not exactly Velo loving, might be, I know he hates riding in cars, must try him out in the cat box strapped to the rack. Problem, sucker weight 25 lbs! Not showing in this image are the stunning blue eyes. I love this guy, he is the very definition of a Big. Wussy. Cat.

Darn filter won't let me say the word i want.

My cat loves my bike...


Anytime I bring it out of the storage room she has to come over and take a look..

This time she was just watching the ice melt in the water bottle

Nermal is not a Normal name for a cat. I'll consider that for future kitty cats. I had one for a while named Elvis (The Hillbilly Cat)

Yep. Max and Rastus were celebrities on NZ. For Xmas, Max wore a Santa suit and Rastus wore a little helmet with reindeer antlers.
They were both killed by a head-on collision back in '98.
